Ueno Park is not only a park, but has many attractions on its grounds to visit too so the size dictates to all these different sights and activities. There are 2 art museums, a zoo, a natural history museum, a baseball field, areas to relax, an area to rent swan paddle boats and enjoy on a lake, and other features.... More

First of all, Ueno park is very HUGE park. If you want to visit every corner of this park, you will need to spend at least 3 hours to do so. The view of Ueno park is stunning and inside Ueno park there are plenty of shrines. You can watch some street performance here. You can cycling around here.

Came to Ueno park mainly due to the museums, galleries and zoo in the area, but was pleasantly surprised by how spacious and well kept it was. We were here in Autumn on a wet Saturday but there were still a large number of people, visiting the park. Wasn't high on our list of places to go initially but was... More

Large park with a lot of nice walking areas, most of which are not too strenuous, if you get there in the morning as well it wont be crowded. We went on a Sunday and they had a bunch of vendors selling very good food (not sure if that is a weekly thing though).

We went to Tokyo for cherry blossoms in early to mid April and managed to see the last bits of cherry blossoms and experienced hanami. Too beautiful. A must do for bucket lists.

This park has it all, a lake, a zoo, many museums and art gallery, temples, statues, street food, but the best time to go is in spring when the cherry blossoms bloom. You can take a plastic sheet and have a picnic by the lake. But be warned, it gets absolutely packed.

This is probably one of the most crowded spot for cherry blossom viewing. You will see many locals and some tourists sitting along the walkway under the cherry blossom trees eating, drinking, singing and chatting. The cherry blossom parties will go on from late morning to night.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
